The rumors that Street Fighter 5 will be a 2016 release are starting to seem increasingly true (though by no means confirmed). Not only has Amazon listed the game for a 2016 launch, but a recent two-page feature in Famitsu further sheds some light on a possible release date along with the development process.

Read below to find out Ayano's statements and a confirmation on how EX moves will be performed in the newest Street Fighter.

Ayano revealed that development of Street Fighter 5 is only 20% complete. "Finally, development on Street Fighter 5 has began! We're currently in the process of figuring out battle mechanics that will satisfy both fans of the Street Fighter 4 series, as well as first-time players. Please look forward to it!" Capcom's Assistant Producer said.

Furthermore, he mentioned that he wanted to further hype Street Fighter 5 in the coming year. For those hopeful of playing the title in 2015, this might prove somewhat disappointing; however, please remember that no release date has been confirmed by Capcom.

While most of the information on the game remained a recap, the interview did confirm that EX moves would still be performed using two buttons of the same type. "The fundamental moves won't change. As with past installments, you will be able to perform EX versions of special moves by hitting two buttons simultaneously. But with that said, we'll also be adding new moves," stated Yoshinori Ono.
